‘Not Bug Splats’: Artists Use Poster-Child In Pakistan Drone Protest

Recommended Posts

It's about time the US stops using drones to indiscriminately murder people, the persons responsible for this activity (including all high ranking commanders who authorized using drones to murder people) should be trial for war crimes...

A poster of a young child has appeared in north-west Pakistan to raise awareness of the numerous drone attacks the region suffered. Artists who created the image hope military commanders will think twice about shooting after seeing the portrait.

More than 200 children are believed to have died in the heavily-bombed Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa according to the website notabugsplat.com. ‘Bug splat’ is the name given by the military to a person who has been killed by a drone. Viewing the body through a grainy computer image gives the impression that an insect has been crushed.

Now a giant portrait of a young child has been produced to try and raise awareness of civilian casualties in the region. The hope is now the drone operator will see a child’s face on his or her computer screen, rather than just a small white dot and may think twice before attacking indiscriminately.

Bush and Obama are ultimately responsible for this and should rot in a Pakistani jail (not a luxury western jail) for the rest of their lives for this.

You'd prefer the Russian approach, such as in Chechnya where they killed a quarter of the civilian population?

How badly do we actually need to kill any of them?

1) Shouldn't this be left to the Pakistanis?

2) Does accidentally killing hundreds of innocents and children prevent terrorism or boost recruitment?

3) when do you stop?
